My new little grand daughter, Hannah Kate joined our family on Monday, February 6. I was able to pull off a few good newborn shots in the hospital room. More shots are on the way, but I had to post this… I’m a little proud of her.
A heavy mid-winter rainfall filled the streams and rivers in north Arkansas a few days ago. With that came an opportunity to get out and capture some waterfall beauty with my camera. Photo buddy, Rhonda Mills and I took an afternoon hike up a nearby canyon called Lost Valley. We were zeroed in on photographing lovely Eden Falls at the end of the trail, but found ourselves intrigued by the little hidden gems of Clark Creek along the way.

As a photographer, I always look forward to shooting the next wedding. Having done this for awhile you could say I am somewhat “seasoned”, but that doesn’t stop me from studying and learning new things. This wedding was one I had looked forward to for awhile and I knew I had some time to give it during shooting that would allow me to practice new techniques. Thank you, Austin and Ashley for scheduling in that extra hour of shooting… for that we have some keepers.
Austin Freeman and Ashley Mildfelt were married on Saturday, November 12 at Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Their reception was held at The Space in downtown Eureka Springs. I didn’t know before hand that in addition to being a very smart and sweet couple, Austin and Ashley can dance up a storm…. and so could most of their guests. Dinner was great, the location was great and the dance floor never cooled off.. not for a minute.
These are just a few of my favorite shots from our afternoon and evening together.
The green spots on the next photo are from the lazor lights. Kudos to our great DJ, Sean from Music in Motion.
Meet my new friend, Alex. He’s a senior this year at Eureka Springs High School. I don’t often get an opportunity to photograph high school seniors, but I have a good time at it when I do. Alex is pretty easy going and patiently endured our long photo session last weekend. We kicked it off shooting with his father’s beautiful red GTO (see below) for an hour or two and then took off to get some shots here and there around this amazing town. These are only a few of the many great shots we got that day. Check ‘em out, Alex… there will be lots more real soon.
The wedding date is set in June for Amy and Evan, but they chose to have engagement photographs taken among the beauty of the fall foliage. The setting is our beautiful Buffalo National River in the northwest Arkansas Ozarks. Natural beauty abounds here so it is the perfect spot to capture a glimpse of the love these two share. Here’s just a little peek at only a few of the images we captured late yesterday.
